Chicago, IL (PRWEB) November 11, 2015
Ziegler, a specialty investment bank, is pleased to announce the successful closing of the $48,700,000 non-rated, fixed-rate, Series 2015 Bond issue for Kenton Housing, Inc. (the Corporation) d/b/a Rosedale Green, a new client to Ziegler.
The Corporation was incorporated in 1962 as a Kentucky not-for-profit corporation for the purpose of providing housing, health care, home health, and other related services to the elderly. Currently the Corporation operates a successful 210-bed skilled nursing campus in Covington, Kentucky (Rosedale Green – Covington). Rosedale Green – Covington has been repositioned several times, most recently in 1992 when the facility existing today was constructed on a little over 11 acres, approximately two miles south of Cincinnati, Ohio.
The Corporation is embarking on a growth and redevelopment plan to expand with a second nearby location and reposition its existing facility (together, the Project), both to be designed to the standards of a modern, resident-directed household model settings for assisted living and skilled nursing.
Rosedale Green plans to construct a new 74-unit senior living facility in Elsmere, Kentucky (Rosedale Green – South) consisting of 54 skilled nursing beds and 20 personal care memory support units. CON licenses for the 54 skilled nursing beds at Rosedale Green – South will be provided by transferring 34 beds from Rosedale Green – Covington and placing into operation 20 purchased beds. Construction is planned to take 12 months with a 10-month fill to stabilized occupancy. Three months after the commencement of construction of Rosedale Green – South, Rosedale Green – Covington will begin a phased renovation by taking some beds out of service as households are renovated. This renovation is planned to take 20 months. The first stabilized year of the Project is 2018. Parties involved in this Project are ActionPact Development (development consulting), Reese Design Collaborative, Inc. (architect), zumBrunnen (construction monitoring) and PARIC Corporation (contractor). The Rosedale Green – South campus is large enough to accommodate a potential expansion if the Corporation chooses in the future.
The Series 2015 Bonds will be issued to (i) fund $33.477 million of capital expenditures to renovate Rosedale Green – Covington and build a second campus, (ii) refinance the existing Series 2008 Bonds, (iii) fund a debt service reserve fund, (iv) fund funded interest on the new money debt for 26 months, and (v) pay a portion of the costs of issuance. The Corporation is the sole member of the newly formed Obligated Group. The Series 2015 Bonds will, at issuance, be the only obligation of the Obligated Group.
